Farmers and landowners usually find it difficult to keep tabs on their property and all the fine-lining that goes into the process of defining the boundaries of one’s land. To streamline this process furthermore and to ensure that farmers and landowners in Telangana do not face these difficulties anymore, the Telangana government has initiated the New Telangana Sada Bainama registration scheme.

About New Telangana Sada Bainama Registration

Under the implementation of this scheme, regularisation of agricultural land in the rural parts of the state becomes a lot easier. However, it is noteworthy that this scheme is not applicable for agricultural land transactions using the Sada Bainama in Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority, the Kakatiya Development Authority, Municipal corporations and Municipalities except for certain specified notified Mandals.

Through the implementation of the scheme, the state government is intending to encourage more people to opt for regularisation of their land, especially in the rural parts of the state, where regularisation is scarce and that leads to further avenues of exploitation on already poor farmers.

Telangana Sada Bainama Application Form

The guidelines issued on the 18th of October 2020 that the Sada Bainama applications for the regularisation of land should ideally be submitted through Mee Seva centres only in the prescribed format.

The cutoff date to regularise Sada Bainama

The state has fixed the 2nd of June as the cutoff for the land transaction on the Sada Bainama which would be eligible for regularisation.

To make matters convenient, the Telangana government said that the stamp duty and registered fee is exempted for a maximum of five acres in the case of small and marginal farmers.

In conclusion

Farming lands can be tricky to register for, as there is a tonne of paperwork involved which would essentially necessitate visiting governmental offices a lot more often. This hassle often discourages farmers and landowners from going through the necessary paperwork to register their land, which, in the long run, leads to further complications.

With the passing of the Telangana scheme, farmers in rural areas of Telangana have a newer, more efficient process to register their land. The cabinet in Telangana is also expected to discuss and approve the Minimum Support Price for the fine variety of paddy and the compensation to the crops due to floods and rain damages. This would require incorporating certain provisions in the municipal corporations for registering non-agricultural properties through Dharani. 

This scheme, in ways more than one, is a callout to the people to opt for provisions that are in place to regularise land under one’s ownership.
